The Hills is coming back for a sequel series! And some of our old faves are seriously not getting along.
Namely, the Pratt siblings.
Stephanie Pratt, Spencer Pratt, and Heidi Montag are all returning for the new reboot of the classic reality TV show. The three stars are currently engaged in a huge feud, and ~celebrity drama~ happens a lot differently now than when The Hills first aired in the ’00s. This time, the fight is unraveling on podcasts and Instagram Stories, way before the series even makes it on-air! Lucky us!
Stephanie fired off the first attack.
On an April 8 episode of her podcast Pratt Cast, she called out Spencer and Heidi for their “toxic” behavior.
“Spencer is dead to me. That’s the only way I can handle it is knowing that he died,” Steph said.
Yeah, she went there.
In response, Spencer vaguely referred to Stephanie as “evil” on his own podcast with Heidi. The drama continued to spiral from there, and apparently, it all started over… a bottle of champagne.
Yep, they’re back.
It feels like the mid-to-late aughts in here, because there is plenty of Hills drama brewing, and it is delicious!
There’s a new reboot of The Hills (which ended in 2010), called The Hills: New Beginnings.
The new show is due to premiere this summer, and it features most of the original cast, including Heidi Montag, Stephanie Pratt, Whitney Port, and Audrina Patridge.
There’s also one new face (Mischa Barton) and a couple of missing old faces (Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad).
Anyway, on to the drama!
So shots were initially fired when Stephanie Pratt vented about her brother Spencer and his wife Heidi on her podcast Pratt Cast.
“We are not on good terms,” Stephanie said. “We are not on speaking terms. I do not consider them my family.”
Heidi went on to explain the source of their current problem. It involves a bottle of champagne.
“We had our photo shoots for press and for the opening titles,” she said. “We had three days of it that went to like 3 a.m. — they were long shoots. And Heidi had a bottle of champagne that she gave all the girls except for me.”
Big if true! Stephanie added that she didn’t confront Heidi in the moment, out of respect for her parents, but she is decidedly done with both Spencer and Heidi.
She went so far as to say that Spencer is dead to her and has been cut out of the family will.
Stephanie noted that her parents are “very well off” but that Spencer was “cut out of the will because of how horrific he is as a human.”
She also claimed that Heidi wants the family money “all to herself.”
“Heidi is always number one to Spencer, so you know what? Spencer is dead to me. That’s the only way I can handle it is knowing that he died,” she said.
Oh. My. Gosh.
Stephanie says their feud goes WAY back to when Heidi and Spencer first started dating. She pretended that her brother and sister-in-law were good people during the original Hills, but she won’t do it this time around.
“They are the most toxic people I’ve ever met,” she said. “I’m going to expose them for who they are.”
After that intense tirade, Spencer and Heidi clapped back during an episode of their own podcast, Make Speidi Famous Again (does everyone have a podcast nowadays or what?!).
Spencer said he’s “just really trying to focus on positive.”
“It’s like, I know, I know. I have been living with this evil around me for a long time,” he said. “I already know. Like, this is news to everyone else.”
“I’m not getting in an argument with people that are just making up lies,” he continued. “If it’s completely not truthful, it’s insanity.”
Stephanie wasted no time responding to that dig. She posted a screenshot of Spencer’s quote about “this evil” and added her own commentary: “Well you are married to the Devil…”
Wow, OK. The show hasn’t even started yet, and fans are Very Ready.
The Hills: New Beginnings premieres on June 24, 2019.
